Crafty Secrets Chipboard Outfit


I finally got a chance to finish this little Crafty Secrets Chipboard outfit that I had in my head for weeks! These little outfits will be introduced at CHA in 3 weeks, and are sold in sets of 2; one boy, one girl, with lots of pockets, collars and embellishments to glue on! They flip open from the top so you could add a sentiment inside or photo! I thought I'd do a christening/Baptismal gown, that could be given as a card/gift. This could also double as a first communion dress! This one was quite easy to do, I just painted the apron of the dress with white Making Memories acrylic paint, and then glued layers of vintage lace to the front after it was dry. The little cross is from a metal embellishment pack that I had in my stash from a long time ago, but you could also use an antique cross necklace or new necklace to give as a gift.

The white patterned paper is from the Crafty Secrets Pastel Paper pad. The back of the dress has a white glittered bow and polka dotted ribbon.
